Have had this stamp set from Inky Antics for a long time and never made a card with it because I just could not figure out how to lay it all out. Finally figured it out and think that it turned out cute! It has been a long time since I made a one layer card, I stamped directly on to the card front. I colored all with Copics. For the flyswatter, I wanted to make it so that you could see the bug underneath. I cut out the inside of the flyswatter and then used Waste Fabric from cross stitching and removed some of the strands and viola, I have a screen! Turned out really neat looking. I pop dotted just the handle part as the screen part is too thin to put the dots on it. Almost makes you want to get sick so you will get the card in the mail someday!

This chocolate card has been in the making for over a year! I saw it on someone's blog and loved it and then never made it. Even borrowed my neighbor's Traffic embossing folder and it all just sat there. Finally, the card! If you cut out the little squares that the Traffic embossing folder makes and then you pop dot them, cover half the image with real aluminum foil and voila, you have a candy bar! So cute!
After making this card, it sat on my desk for another few weeks until I had the time to search for just the right saying - sometimes that can take as long as it takes to make the card! Hope you enjoy!

This card was a fast card to make - just cut the ATV image out using the cartridge Dude with the Cricut (has three layers). Then I just pop dotted it onto a rough/pebble looking piece of wall paper! Years ago I got a wallpaper book from a paint store and am still using pages out of the book! It really gave this card a neat look and feel. To the left is the inside of the card. Once again, I love to play with words and so I came up with At The Very for ATV - get it - LOL! David liked the card and he had a great birthday!
Whenever I give a card that is not mailed, I always have to decorate the envelope. I took a model car and inked up one of the wheels and ran it across the envelope for tire tracks because my theme of the card was the ATV. Cleaned off the tire and put the model back and no one is wiser for me doing it - shhhhh!
